Look what goes into the capsize screening formula, i.e. Capsize Ratio:
Capsize Screening Formula = Beam / (Displacement / 64)1/3
Displacement is in Pounds
Beam is measured in Feet

It really doesn't tell you much of anything about stability. Like the weight can be anywhere and not effect stability -- I don't think so.
